SOURCE: leaking pure source 2 ice and water filter

Hi-

Three things

  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
Hope this help

Thanks for using Fixya!

SOURCE: water filter leaking

This happened to me and was the o-ring, the cup is sealed by the o-ring and in my case I did not realise it dopped off after I unscrewed. Either your o-ring is missing or needs replaced as it is worn out.

SOURCE: replacement water filter won't stay in place.

I had a similar problem. In fact, the new filter couldn't be made to stay flush with the fridge housing. This filter, as it turns out, has been redesigned by the mfg. The unit is now opaque as opposed to the original design, which is covered in white plastic. The reason that the filter will not lock in place is that there is a bar between the two connectors which is longer than that in the original. I was told that there are certain Frigidaires which will not accommodate ths new design. This leaves me with o alternative than to find a source for the original filter design - the one in which the activated carbon is visible through the clear plastic. I'e ordered one from eBay and am hopng for the best.

My frigidaire ultra pure water filter will not stay installed after it clicks in any help?!


Inspect the little latch that locks or clicks filter into place.
Look for a rounded edge or worn edge on latch.
If you find a problem then call a tech or return refrigerator.
If you don't find a problem it could be water pressure, but thats unlikely.

What problems have you encountered with newly designed Pure Source 2 water filter


I spoke with Frigidaire's Customer Service [(706)860-4110] and they said that the filter was redesigned. A customer needs to get a "service flash" number from the customer service representative. The rep will also provide you with local repair companies who will use the service flash number in order to get reimbursed by Frigidaire for fixing/updating the customer's refrigerator... at no charge to the customer.

Replacement water filter won't stay in place.


I too had this problem...the metal tabs in the filter housing need to be bent in toward the center to hold the new filter tighter...I also filed the tabs that rest on the spings down a bit to lessen the tension. So far so good!

Where do I find the filter that needs to be changed


Hi

There are two types of water filter fitted to this model they are both located in the top right hand corner of the refrigerator section.

1. The standard water filter looks like an upturned bowl, to change this you need to unplug and switch off the unit, turn off the water supply and unscrew the filter around 1/4 turn anticlockwise.
Replace the filter and tighten the bowl checking that the O rings are in place. You may make a bit of a mess with water dripping out as you remove the filter bowl. These can be quite stubborn if they have not been changed before.

2.Pure source filter is on the face of the unit next to the thermostat, again shut down the unit and turn off the water before removing the filter, there is a small button lower right on the face, when you press this the filter should pop out, again spilling some water.

It is vital that you prime the system properly before using the water or ice this means running at least 2 gallons of water out of the water valve on the front to make sure that all the air is out and that pure water is in the machine.

You manual is available at this link

Frigidaire Pure Source 2 water filter keeps popping out.


My parents frig had the same problem. The steel tabs that hold the filter in place are very small and frail. Heres what I did to solve the problem, at least temporarily. While firmly holding the filter release button, gently bend the tabs together using an extra long pair of curved needle nose pliers.
